This belief eventually brought a huge mass of working class to his side as they strongly believed Hitler’s change on economy would bring them more wages, which means they would live prosperously compared to the Depression era. As shown from Schweitzer’s quote “no single unified economic system prevailed throughout the entire period of the Nazi regime”, this job creation through public works had improved not only economy in Germany but the quality of people in Germany, which shows that Nazis economic policy was mainly based from the evolvement of demands from Germans, and in this way, Nazis gained massive support. For instance, the Autobahns improved the transport and travel, in other words, it encouraged industries to develop such as Volkswagen. Volkswagen was the main motorisation firm that many workers were able to buy by paying monthly installments. This availability of cars and the improved transport infrastructure provided a leisure for workers who have free holidays due to KDF scheme, Strength through Joy, but also for youth generation which were provided from Nazi Youth Groups.
A black doctor is forced out of his new home when the majority-white neighborhood sets his garage on fire. Soon after, a line of explosives are planted to drive out black families nearby. “98 percent of the public-housing units in Chicago” are built in majority-black neighborhoods. Time after time after time, black people are denied loans and mortgages, while their white counterparts are granted them happily by the lenders. And yet, one often encounters crude statements about the “ghetto”, the alleged home of all black families.
By Hitler influencing the youth it would help the Nazi Party gain more support because the youth was hope for the future. The political and economic disorganization in the postwar led to the rise of new political parties. One of these parties was the Nazi party and Hitler was one of the party's first recruits. Hitler was put into power and the Nazi Party had complete power over Germany, anything what Hitler wanted was passed easily through the power of this government. Many people were desperate and the people wanted someone to lead them and help them recover after the war.
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world.
Taking after a 30-moment hearing, Rosa was discovered blameworthy of abusing a neighborhood law and was fined $10, and additionally a $4 court charge. Inarguably the greatest occasion of the day, be that as it may, was what Rosa 's trial had activated. The Montgomery Bus Boycott, as it came to be known, was a tremendous achievement. The city 's transports were, all things considered, unfilled. A few individuals carpooled and others rode in African-American-worked taxis, however the greater part of the evaluated 40,000 African-American suburbanites living in the city at the time had picked to stroll to work that day—some to the extent 20
The 1955-56 Montgomery Bus Boycott, a protest against segregated public facilities in Alabama, was led by Martin Luther King Jr. and lasted for 381 days.

Their goal was to achieve a country that was self-sufficient, this included goal such as rebuilding the German army and providing for the German people. While the party had little interest in improving and making international relationships, unless it was to further Germany of
Black on Black violence in New Orleans Louisiana has risen exponentially ever since the devastation that was Hurricane Katrina, a problem that can be solved by the coming together of the African American community to protect each other’s back. Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans Louisiana on August 29th, 2005 and left an impact that could not properly be described by any set of words. The main problem that everyone could see was that a great city had been completely obliterated. The dilemma that was overlooked by practically everyone was that the entire city had shut down. The Mayor at the time, Mayor Ray Nagin called for a mandatory evacuation of the city for the Hurricane, but due to the history of false calls with storms that were said to
Bryan C. Clift, lecturer at the University of Bath, stated, "To make way for Beijing's 2008 Olympic infrastructure, an estimated 1.5 million people were forcibly evicted from their homes with minimal compensation. The neighbourhoods were destroyed and residents removed to the outskirts of the city far from friends, family and places of work.” Eight years later in the 2016 Olympics, a similar problem presented itself, with residents near Rio’s stadium being forcibly removed from their homes (Clift). This led to violence between the authorities and the residents that had done nothing wrong. The Olympics eventually lead to environmental problems, which further troubles the citizens of the host nations.
Blacks were clearly not treated right back then in the 1900s, especially when it comes to the housing part or property. In an article called, “How We Built the Ghettos”, the article states that on July 28th, 1957, 100 black were picnicking and was attacked by 6,000 to 7,000 whites. The blacks have been to this park before and nothing happened till that day and they had to have 500 police officers in that area to calm down the area. How this relates to the book is because on page 102, Ms. Johnson had the paper and it said, “NEGRO’S INVADE CLYBOURNE PARK--BOMBED!” The Younger family was going to move to that area and now there is a chance they could get bombed because they are African American and this is a white neighbor.
20.3- The Great Society • Johnson Takes Over o As popular as Kennedy had become to this point in his life before he died, Lyndon Baines Johnson was to become just as popular due to his motivation and drive that he exhibited in order to continue Kennedy’s legacy. When he was young, FDR helped him progress within his political career, making him Johnson’s idol and motivated to mimic his leadership style. o This was a good decision on Johnson’s behalf as this allowed him to prove himself to both the people and Congress.
In this paper, I will focus on the Civil Rights Act of 1964. I will provide the history, the important people involved in the establishment of the Civil Rights Act, the events that led to the act, and the reactions from the people, mostly Southerners, after the act was established. In the year of 1963, Blacks were experiencing high racial injustice and widespread violence was inflicted upon them. The outcry of the harsh treatments inflicted upon them caused Kennedy to propose the Civil Rights Act.
In 1890, the state of Louisiana passed a law (the Separate Car Act) that required separate accommodations for blacks and whites on railroads, including separate railway cars. Concerned, a group of prominent black, creole, and white New Orleans residents formed the Comité des Citoyens (Committee of Citizens) dedicated to repeal the law or fight its effect. They persuaded Homer Plessy, a man of mixed race, to participate in an orchestrated test case. Plessy was born a free man and was an "octoroon" (of seven-eighths European descent and one-eighth African descent). However, under Louisiana law, he was classified as black, and thus required to sit in the "colored" car.
In 1911, one of the most infamous incidents in American industrial history occurred when the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burned, killing 145 workers. It is one of the most remembered incidents since the deaths were largely preventable. Most victims died as a result of neglected safety features and locked doors within the factory building. While the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire did result in a new legislation for safety in the work place, it was not the most important result. The most important result was the institution of the process to enforce pre-existing legislation regarding worker safety and protection in the workplace along with the laws that followed.
